Hymns, music and poems

The correct choice of hymns and music is an integral element of most funeral services these days, but for situations where no musical preference is stated then we are happy to recommend suitable light classical music for moments such as when the mourners enter or leave the chapel.

An organist can be arranged to play at most service locations, or alternatively CDs or tapes may be used but it is advisable that these are tested on the equipment available beforehand.

Bournemouth Crematorium uses a computerised music library and we are required to notify them of any music and hymn requests at least 48 hours in advance.

Poems or readings also can be appropiate and provide comfort to those who are grieving. For a selection of suitable poems or readings please use the adjacent link, and for an idea of hymns that are commonly sung at funerals we list a selection below:

Musical notes on a page

The Lord's my shepherd
Abide with me
All things bright and beautiful
Amazing Grace
Morning has broken
The day thou gavest, Lord has ended
O Lord my God (How great thou art)
Praise my soul, the king of heaven
Love divine, all loves excelling
Dear Lord and father of mankind
Guide me, O thou great redeemer
Eternal Father srong to save
The King of love my shepherd is
Make me a channel of your peace
Lord of all hopefulness, Lord of all joy
Lead us heavenly Father lead us
In heavenly love abiding
Immortal, invisable, God only wise
The old rugged cross
Thine be the glory
Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father
O Jesus, I have promised
O God, our help in ages past
There is a green hill far away
